How big chance is that Ampere will be on PCI-E 4.0 ?

How long is a piece of string?
he's asking chances.

pretty big.

if I were to bet money,I'd rather bet 4.0 than 3.0

OT,but if Intel will have to debut their Xe gpus in 2020/21 on amd platform it's gonna be hilarious.

Chances.. Ie: a guess, no one knows, it's a pointless question hence my reply, chances are you would think they will be pcie 4 though that's only an assumption based on the current situation and the fact that rdna is pcie 4 but until specs are confirmed it's all just guess work..

There is a good chance, but we have no information about it.

For gaming I wouldn't worry though, there is virtually no chance of bottlenecking.

I would be surprised if it wasn't, not that it matters though.

the next nvidia gpu might be on pci-e 4.0 but that wont matter because current games might not utilize the available bandwith
you might see 1-2 fps difference. remember when agp 4x went to 8x on the geforce 4 ti4600 the difference was 1fps, same thing happen when agp 8x went to pci-e 1.0

According to notebookcheck:

"The Ampere generation will support PCIe Gen4 and will be fabbed on a 7nm process most likely from TSMC, but we have also seen reports of Samsung offering to do the honors as well at much lower prices."

NVIDIA said Samsung, not TSMC: www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20190702000692

NVIDIA doesn't want to compete with AMD and Apple for wafers from TSMC.

Also, PCIe 4.0 doesn't really matter unless the card doesn't have enough VRAM. Buy a card that doesn't skimp on VRAM and PCIe 3.0 is plenty.

I believe some representative from Nvidia said they would be using both TSMC and Samsung, but I can't find the original source. Does Samsung even have a node capable of producing 250-300W chips?

You should know better than this. NVIDIA and AMD doesn't compete with Apple for wafers. High power and low power parts are on different production lines using different nodes. Also, wafer supply agreements are done far in advance.

It has more to do with how graphics use the GPU. I don't think even if you put 10x the memory on the board that it would necessary need the PCEe 4.0 bandwidth.

big behemoth cards (tesla/quadro) tsmc
geforce - samsung low power

we may see maxwell/pascal-like launch,with 180w 3080 coming first and 3080Ti later on

For one thing Nvidia and AMD don't compete for the low power 7nm wafers also I don't think Samsung's 7nm is on par with TSMC's and that's excluding EUV. Samsung has never been on par in high performance nodes and to be fair neither in low power (Exynos vs Qualcomm).

That being said, I doubt they would want to lose the process edge.
